Good choice. The 6600 GT is a very good card.

but except to have some problems, the 6600 GT is known to have an insane amount of customers who are PISSED with this structure.

The problem lies in the PCI-e to AGP converter thingy.

The 6600's are natively PCI express, so they need a chip to make it compatible with AGP.

So they're having a lot of problems.

Hmmm...haven't heard anything about it, but I could imagine problems with the PCI-E to AGP converter chip thing.
